While the full lineup will probably be announced next week, today we got news about the first free Xbox One game in the lineup. It’s a brand new Day 1 indie game release called Earthlock: Festival of Magic from developer Snow Castle Games. The announcement was made by Major Nelson on Twitter. You can watch the trailer for the game below.
About the game
Desert scavenger Amon finds himself in the adventure of his life when he crosses paths with a most peculiar creature back home in Zaber. Join Amon and other remarkable heroes in this turn-based fantasy RPG, on an unforgettable journey across the world of Umbra; a mysterious, beautiful but harsh planet that stopped spinning thousands of cycles ago.
Features of Earthlock: Festival of Magic
– Explore the magical world of Umbra
– Fast and deep turn‐based battles
– Harvest magical materials and craft items on your home island
– Thorough character customization
– A set of unlikely and unique heroes, each with their own unique fighting style
– Talent Table: combining a classic ‘skilltree’ and equipment to customise your character’s progression
With the amount of indie hate PlayStation Plus gets it will be interesting to see what kind of reception this gets. Again the full Games with Gold lineup for September 2016 should be announced later next week. I for one always like when either service gives brand new Day 1 releases. Let us know in the comments what you think of Earthlock.
